Problem: Consider Complex I and Complex IV of the electron transport chain of mitochondria. Which of the following is true? a. The electrons passed off by complex IV must have come from the same source as the electrons passed off by Complex I.b. The electrons given off by Complex I are of higher energy than the electrons passed off by Complex IV.c. Complex I passes its electrons to Complex II while Complex IV passes its electrons to O2.d. Complex I receives electrons from NADH or FADH2 while Complex IV receives its electrons from Complex III.
